Pamela Lesch of Prime Time Pretty is one of the most genuine and heartfelt people I know. She is also one of the most talented estheticians and makeup artists that I know!

I am thrilled to be included in her collaboration with Diana Deaver, "The Photographer Project". Pamela worked her makeup magic on me and then I sat for a portrait by Diana. It was an incredible experience to be on the other side of the lens and makeup brush like that!

I loved answering her interview questions as they really made me sit down and think. Read below for my interview and go here to see more from this project!

Established December 28, 1748, the Charleston Library Society is one of the oldest libraries in the United States. I was thrilled to be asked to photograph their guest of honor, Julian Fellowes- who was most gracious and entertaining, on his grand tour of Charleston, SC!

It's always fun to see my photos in use! Last summer, I photographed the RESORT 17' Bumby Collection for Marysia here in Charleston. We did photos on land and underwater.

We were lucky enough to shoot at two adjacent houses on Sullivans Island that each has their own pool. Kids + 2 pools! + fashion = it doesn't get any more fun than this!

As someone who is used to being behind the camera and not in front of it, my first TV appearance was a little nerve wracking. But in all honesty, it was more exciting than anything.

I was flattered to be asked to come on and talk about the photos I'd taken here in Charleston during hurricane Matthew.

You can see the full segment here: Lowcountry Live : TV Debut

Proceeds from the fine art prints I am selling will go to benefit the Historic Charleston Foundation. Prices start at $150 and you can purchase them at shop.leighwebber.com.

"86 cheese biscuits for Matthew". I love the humor that Nick's BBQ brought to their storm prep for hurricane Matthew. Thank you to the Charleston City Paper for using my photo on the cover and including more photos form my series in the latest issue.

Thank you to Garden & Gun for the feature of my photos, "Hurricane Matthew: Dispatch from Downtown Charleston" on both on their website and in their weekly newsletter, "Talk of the South".

I love that they used the photo of the palm tree in front of the Charleston court house on Broad Street. The palm is the symbol for the state of South Carolina and this photo feels very iconic to how Charleston has stood strong over the years.

Four select photos from this series are available as limited edition fine art prints. The proceeds will go to benefit the Historic Charleston Foundation for repairs caused by hurricane Matthew.

It is a total honor to be featured on APhotoEditor.com I met with Jonathan Blaustein at PhotoNOLA a couple of weeks ago and got some pretty hard core criticism as I showed him images from my series, “Collect Moments Not Things”. I’m not sure anyone’s ever been so directly honest about my work. With a little time, I realized that as much as it hurt to hear his opinion, it was also some of the best advice I’ve ever gotten. Thankfully, at the end of our conversation, he gave me the opportunity to come home and send him a re-edit of 8 images that might be more tightly connected and I took that challenge to heart. So I’m pretty excited to have my work featured on A Photo Editor today.
